Honda Power Equipment announced today that it has shipped 30 million products to domestic dealers and distributors since it began offering outdoor power equipment in the United States in 1972.

"We achieved our latest milestone in sales by continually designing and building equipment that exceeds consumer expectation," Honda Power Equipment vice president Scott Conner said in a statement. "This accomplishment demonstrates that customers value technological and environmental innovation and Honda remains committed to both."

Although Honda Power Equipment products are produced at 11 manufacturing facilities worldwide, nearly 75 percent of those sold in America are produced using domestic and globally sourced parts at the Honda Power Equipment manufacturing facility in Swepsonville, N.C., which opened in August 1984.
